New Forests’ track record and experience managing real assets such as forests and agriculture is combined with our expertise in carbon finance and biodiversity. With so much of the world dependent on nature, we are currently developing new opportunities for investors focused on driving returns from natural capital such as soil, forests, water, air and biodiversity.
Nature-based Solutions are actions to conserve, restore, and sustainably manage natural and modified ecosystems to address environmental, social, and economic challenges.
Developing and scaling Nature-based Solutions is crucial to address climate change and biodiversity loss and to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
How we drive value
New Forests has been actively developing investments in Nature-based Solutions since inception in 2005. This includes pioneering transactions in the Californian and Australian carbon markets and investing in wetland, stream, and biodiversity banks in the United States and Asia.
We operate in government-regulated and voluntary carbon markets in all the regions in which we invest.
